All work and no play makes this catechist a dull boy. So I’m getting some much needed R & R!
While I’m on vacation until late July, I thought it’d be fun to share some of my favorite jokes from my books, A Well-Built Faith and The Bible Blueprint. Here’s today’s contribution:
A catechist was discussing the Ten Commandments with her class. After explaining the commandment to “honor thy father and thy mother,” she asked “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?” Without missing a beat one young boy answered, “Thou shall not kill.”
Your little story brought to mind an incident that occurred while I was teaching a grade 7 class several years ago. In the context of a class project, I had asked the students to explain in their own words what they thought each of the 10 commandments meant. One young man wrote the following:
“You shall not commit adultery.” means that you should love your wife even if she is not pretty.
Gilles, that’s hilarious!
